Five Fabulous Quotes for Cat Lovers



Long haired orange tabby cat

Meet Mr. G, my long haired orange tabby cat.  Mr. G is one of the sweetest felines I have been blessed with in my life.   Because of his sweetness, I decided he was the perfect kitty to spotlight for these five quotes for cat lovers.

 To give you a little history,  Mr. G was born on our property by a mama cat, who had been dumped.  Mr. G and his mama (Ms. S) still reside with us today, along with his brother (Mr. C) and another female (Ms. S1).

 They have all been spayed/neutered,  in case you are wondering!

They have the option to roam 3 acres of wooded property, catch some rays on the sun deck or lounge indoors with access to cat beds and toys, in a climate controlled environment.   Nothing but the best for these sweet little fur babies ❤

Cats deserve nothing but the best you can offer, don't you agree?

If you are still reading, I would have to guess that you have a special place in your heart for cats as well.

To celebrate the cat lover in all of us, here are five fabulous quotes by famous people, enjoy!
